the BIG problem with this is that ODD does not allow
for it. moving in such a direction means starting the transition
to ODD version 3, which would (among other things) remove DTDs.
the alternative being to embed all the intelligence in Schematron;
which would work, but is likely to remains a minority activity.
but if we decided strategically that alternate content
models is the future of the TEI (and it has a lot of attractions),
then it could be a target for this year.
